, to require those that traffic in firearms by wrongfully obtaining two or more firearms, and we'll give law enforcement more effective tools. the substitute also incorporates a number of changes, the result of suggestions from senator grassley and his staff. we have been working on this since january. tried to be responsive to the ranking member's concerns and suggestions, and have reached across the aisle to other senators. as a a.t.f. whistleblower, senator grassley has been the lead senator in whistleblower legislation, was a a.t.f. whistleblower, who testified last congress that the existing laws are toothless and they can help law enforcement -- can't help law enforcement, and that's why law enforcement consistently has called for firearms trafficking statute that can be effective and go after straw purchasers. we need now is to create better law enforcement tools. and i think this will -- the senators can join together on this will close a very dangerous loophole in the law that mexican drug cartels and gangs and other criminals have exploited for too long. stop illegal trafficking th

violence. it already says in federal law if you have a domestic violence conviction if you have a domestic violence protection order against you, under federal law you are not supposed to be able to have a gun. colorado did not have in place a mechanism at the state level to enforce that. so what passed this morning, the first bill that advanced this morning in colorado would create that mechanism at the state level to keep people who have been convicted of domestic violence related offenses or have domestic violence protection orders against them. there was a loophole that said you have to apply and get a license and get checked out to give you a concealed carry permit. but none of that had to happen in person. you could do the whole thing online. from your padded cell or wherever. nobody ever had to look at you face to face. under the second bill that moved today, now that loophole will be closed in colorado. you cannot do it just online. another bill that passed today would close the loophole that says not everybody has to have a background check before they buy a gun. buying a gun at a
and furious, i was told by whistle blowers that there were gaps in federal laws concerning straw purchasers which should be addressed, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way ince
on the issues. the u.s. government cannot randomly target citizens. what it can do under the laws of war is target enemy combatant anywhere at any time including on u.s. soil. >> they are wrong on this issue. the problem is if i call you an enemy combatant, how do we know if you are or aren't. that's me calling and accusing you of a crime should there be enough power by any politician, republican or democrat to say you are an enemy combatant and maybe a missile will drop on your house. i believe that is unjust and unconstitutional that if you are an american, people can't accuse you and call you a name. they are assuming that the person calling your name is on a mission and knows you are guilty of that. the way i see it is we have a lot of arab americans that live in deer born, michigan. the vast majority are good american people. say they have a cousin and e-mail them. say somebody thinks their cousin is a terrorist. for goodness sakes, would you drop bombs on people and say we are associated with terrorism and he's an enemy combatant. that's a lot different than someone with a grenade
